Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Scholars from Taipei, London, and many other countries besides the People's Republic speculate on how economic reform will impact China's internal and external defense policy. They discuss corruption in the People's Liberation Army, Chinese defense industries and arms sales, modernization and Sino-American relations, impacts on East Asia and the South China Sea, threats across the Taiwan Strait, and other dimensions. The 11 papers are revised from presentations at a conference in Hong Kong in July 1994. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
